According to my point of view and what I think, the Rolls Royce is a car that will turn many heads as you drive down the street. I'm sure that the Mercedes would do that as well but it just would not do it as well as the Roller would. But due to the fact that I have tried and driven both cars and experienced it.... I'm going to have to go for the S65 AMG because of my severe addiction to speed. The kind of performance that you get in a 65 you just can not get in any other kind of full size luxury saloons. But of course that is my experience so I would like to hear what the rest has to say.


Would you sacrifice brand prestige for performance? Mercedes S65 AMG// vs Rolls Royce Ghost
